OG Maco

Rumors have circulated as of late about OG Maco contracting HIV, but the Atlanta rapper vehemently denies the claims.

The 2015 XXL Freshman Classman took to Instagram this week to address the rumors.

“Despite the vicious rumors, I am in fine health and have no degenerative or deadly diseases,” Maco wrote. “My best holiday wishes to the person spreading this irresponsible and cruel rumor throughout social media, but know we are unmoved and will not falter in the face [of] such cowardly and underhanded tactics.”

The rumors began earlier in the week on gossip sites, via a blind item post that said an Atlanta rapper had been infected.
